For over ten years, Nigel has researched, presented and written extensively on operational governance, obligations and compliance matters, including a number of recent white papers for the IIA. His focus is on helping organisations deal with the day to day operational obligations and risks in organisations large and small that can injure, maim and kill staff, contractors, customers and other stakeholders.

With his operational compliance administration experience and background in engineering, Nigel has a unique perspective on the industry and his access to a growing database of over 12,000 compliance documents provides a strong practical basis for his GORC models and frameworks.
